    Finally did it just now. I deactivated the account a few times, but kept going back after a week or two. This time I made it permanent. I feel better already.

    Glad to see! I can't even imagine the Profiles they have on each US citizen, far beyond "Big Brother" does.

    Neither my wife nor I ever created a Spacebook account for that particular reason. We could never understand why people would want to send out their personal information into places they can't control.

    I couldn't access my FB from way back when. Wifey went through a few hoops to have it deleted for me. There is a 30 day reversal period so you will have to wait a month before it's all over with. Mine is finally gone, at least from public display. I'm quite sure it lives on within FB servers so that it may be used to my detriment or FB's benefit anytime it suits them.

    I'm celebrating the fact that I omitted or substituted sensitive and telling information during registration and use.

    If FB has it, big brother does as well.

    FB has a bunch of info for sure, but anytime you email, text, call or even just carry a cell phone you are being tracked/ recorded/ bombarded with wireless signals. I'm sure federal Law enforcement knows more about us then most of our friends and families know!

    If 100% privacy is absolutely necessary then burner phones are the answer for sensitive private matters. I have zero faith in authorities to have integrity or exercise fairness. I'm sure some do, but one would be foolish to count in that given all that we already know about abuses and blatant rights violations.

    Locking out advertisers and trackers is much easier really but if one wants solid privacy from those with more resources than Google there are steps and methods to protect oneself and those they interact with from unreasonable scrutiny. I pay my taxes, adamantly obey all laws protecting peeps and property and live by the golden rule. Beyond that I recognize no obligation on my part to endure warrant-less intrusions from anyone. I guess it all depends on how much being constantly monitored bothers a person.

    It's been about 5 weeks since I exited Facebook. Surprisingly, I had no "FB Withdrawal" symptoms, and no desire to even see if I have actually been deleted.
    It just doesn't matter anymore.

    Should have done it years ago..

    No withdrawals here, actually it was liberating. Never looked back. Glad it's working well for you.
